The production of the 2024 Alfa Romeo Tonale has officially begun at the company’s Pomigliano d’Arco plant in Naples, Italy. Those units being produced in Italy are destined for the North American market, with availability starting in June. It’s Alfa Romeo’s first plug-in hybrid and will compete in the premium compact crossover segment with a starting price of $44,590 including destination.
The 2024 Alfa Romeo Tonale is powered by a 1.3-liter turbocharged engine and a 90-kW electric motor to deliver a best-in-class 285 horsepower. As a plug-in hybrid, it delivers an all-electric range of over 30 miles thanks to a 15.5-kWh lithium-ion battery pack. Every model of the Tonale comes standard with all-wheel drive.
Those interested in purchasing the Alfa Romeo Tonale can actually build and price their vehicle through alfaromeousa.com before selecting their preferred dealer to finalize the purchase. Currently the pre-orders are open for the Tonale Ti and Tonale Veloce trim levels, which are priced from $46,590 and $49,090 respectively (including destination). The entry-level Sprint model will be available later in Q1 of 2023. Those who choose to lease the Tonale can take advantage of a $7,500 Federal EV tax credit.
Recently, we did a first drive review of the Dodge Hornet R/T, which shares its platform with the Alfa Romeo Tonale and is built at the same plant in Italy.
